Did you know that most conventional (even some local artisan) baguettes are not made with whole grains?
Instead, made with Hickory flour which is a chemically treated high protein flour used to boost the strength of a dough and has no nutritional value
Our French beer baguettes are:
- Naturally leavened (which helps to breakdown gluten over a period of time, no commercial yeast added)
- No Hickory flour! Made with Whole grains – over 75% grown in Ontario
- Featuring organic Khorasan, an ancient grain with higher protein content and excellent flavour and colour, Spent Barley grains, organic corn flour which imparts unique toasted flavour.
- 100% Vegan (e.g., no eggs, no dairy)
- 100% Halal (we recover the barley before yeast is added that converts it into beer)
- NO preservatives or additives
12% Spent barley Grains from Henderson Brewing, Untreated Special Baker Flour from P+H Milling (blend of Ontario and Prairie wheats), Flour All Purpose from P+H (blend of Ontario and Prairie wheats), Organic Khorasan (Kamut) Flour from Grain Pro, Organic Corn flour from K2 Milling, Water, Levain, Diastatic Malt powder from Grain Pro, Bakers Fresh Yeast from SAF, Fine Sea Salt from Baker’s panty, imported from Italy.
Spent Goods loaves help to reduce climate change by using high fibre grains that have already been used to make beer. By diverting these grains, you are directly helping to reduce greenhouse gases had it been disposed

Did you know Barley grains are:
Good for your Health – Considered one of the healthiest whole food grains.
Studies show it’s protective against Breast Cancer, Type 2 Diabetes, Gallstones, Heart failure and lowers cholesterol.
Good Nutrition – Double the fiber and protein; Less gluten (but NOT gluten-free) and low glycemic compared to white flour bread.
How is the Barley sourced?
In the craft brewing process, once the barley has been boiled to release sugar, the grains are considered ‘spent’ and traditionally provided as animal feed or disposed – 185 million KGs of brewery grains are disposed in Ontario every year.
Instead, if we took those spent grains and made food with it, we could feed every Ontarian 2 loaves of bread every week!
These brewery grains have twice the amount of fibre and protein compared to wheat (it’s the reason it’s used as animal feed) – Fibre is ideal for reducing cholesterol and is one of the whole grains listed on the Canadian food guide.
Made in Toronto by Henderson Brewing, Drake Commissary and The Spent Goods Company.
We believe you can do something about climate change (and your heart) on a daily basis, simply by eating our Beer Baguettes!
